October Trader Joe’s Favorites

October 19, 2018

Last year, I shared my favorite pumpkin spice items from Trader Joe’s in October. Maybe it’s the cooler weather we have had in Dallas, or maybe it’s my obsession with chocolate, but I am loving the hot cocoa trend at Trader Joe’s lately. Here are some of my favorite things I can’t get enough of this month.

If you love mac & cheese, but are looking for a healthier option, I would highly recommend the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese. It’s only available during the fall season, so you should probably just stock your freezer up with it. They mixed the pasta with a three cheese sauce, butternut squash pureé, and spices like sage and nutmeg. I don’t know what else to say other than I ate the entire box in one night and only wanted one serving. Since then, I have done the same thing every time I’ve bought it.

Chocolate salted caramel mug cakes

Chocolate Salted Caramel Mug Mix is made with simple ingredients, and are easy to make when you are craving a sweet treat and don’t want to down a whole cake by yourself. It’s freaking delicious on its own or with a scoop of ice cream. Apparently, it will only be around for a limited time, so stock up on this too.

Frosted hot cocoa toaster pastries

Hi, my name is Jessica, and I am addicted to hot cocoa. I have been since I was a little girl. You may remember I included the Pumpkin Frosted Toaster Pastries in last year’s post. This year, they released a new flavor, Frosted Hot Cocoa Toaster Pastries. They are fudgy, and perfect for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. I even eat them for dessert sometimes.

Hot cocoa dunkers

When I was little, I dunked cookies in my hot cocoa. Now, I dunk Hot Cocoa Dunkers in it. They are made with real cocoa, chocolate, and marshmallows. You don’t have to dip them in just hot cocoa, milk or coffee will do the trick too.

Face sheet mask

Warning: You will look creepy and fit right in for Halloween

Allison got me hooked on face masks. Who doesn’t love the idea of a spa day at home? When I saw that Trader Joe’s now carries their own Face Sheet Mask. The sheet is made with 100% cotton and soaked in a variety of ingredients to hydrate, revitalize, and calm. They sell them individually wrapped, so it’s the perfect grab and go for an in-home spa day.
